Note Me and my good friend are avid players of Rust, we had an idea for a weapon that might fit with the rust community to balance out the amounts of assault rifles (AK47) that are crafted in game, criticism or even your own opinion is a must for this post.
We all have come to know the Assault Rifle (AK47) in Rust, it is powerful weapon with high recoil to balance the damage amounts, and a good choice for taking out heavily armored foes or nakeds from almost any distance. The weapons modeled in Rust are supposed to look like they were crafted out of makeshift materials, and that is what makes these weapons visually acceptable in this post apocalyptic world where humanity has obviously lost trust with others in normal society.
Now that I’m done rambling, time to explain, the idea is for an assault rifle that is cheaper to make than the current AK47 and still retains are balanced amount of pros and cons, the M16A1.
The pros and cons about this weapon are listed below.
-Cheaper to create, using only 80 Wood and 40 (or 45) High Quality Metal to Construct.
-Has similar to half the damage of the AK47.
-Less Recoil standing, crouching, and while on the move.
-Reloads slightly faster than the AK47.
-A shorter magazine capacity than the AK47: 25 Bullets
-Less Damage than the AK47.
-Can only be crafted via a Blueprint Library, and only found in airdrops.
-It has a slightly, slightly slower rate of fire than the AK47.
P.S. Feel free to criticize this idea, and modify the pros and cons to your liking if you agree with this.
